p.1 #1 · Barn owls close up portraits from Suffolk


Loss of rough grass land and conversion of barns into houses over the last 50 years has dramatically reduced the Barn Owl population in the UK. However, in Suffolk many farmers are now leaving wider field margins and hundreds of Barn owl boxes have been put up which has led to a recovery in Barn owl numbers. I help to monitor the boxes which gives me the opportunity to watch Barn owls close up. These are some of the photos I have taken this summer. Regards Mike

Barn owls are great. They are essentially gone in Canada; there never were very many. Your example looks very similar to the North Am. version. #1 is very fine. Don

Thanks for the feedback! I am virtually certain that the Barn owl (Tyto Alba) is exactly the same bird right round the world. These images do have an evening feel, it was almost dark when I took them, new lenses with IS and cameras with high ISO are amazing - I would not even taken a camera out in that light a few years ago. Regards Mike

Thanks for looking and the kind comments. You are welcome to follow me round for day but I can't promise much action I would probably need to improve my conversation skills! Regards Mike
